iOvera Non-Surgical Treatment
The iOvera treatment uses the body’s natural response to cold to immediately reduce pain without leaving anything behind. It precisely targets the source of pain for immediate and lasting relief without the use of drugs or pharmaceuticals.
IS IOVERA RIGHT FOR ME?
How does the iOvera treatment work to control my pain?
The iOvera treatment works by applying targeted cold to a peripheral nerve which immediately prevents the nerve from sending pain signals. The effect of the cold on the nerve is temporary and does not cause permanent damage because it leaves the structural components of the nerve intact. The nerve is restored to function after several months.
PREPARING FOR TREATMENT
How do I prepare for the procedure?
There is very little that you need to do before your treatments. During the consultation with your pain management consultant, please discuss your daily medications such as blood thinners, pain medications, and any health conditions or health history.
What can I expect after the procedure?
Most patients experience immediate pain reduction after treatment so please refer to your pain management team for guidance on post-treatment activities. There is little downtime following treatment, and you should be able to resume your normal activities on the treatment day. There is typically no general anesthesia required, and most patients are able to drive home following treatment if advised by their physician. Side effects are typically transient and comparable to other needle based treatments, such as bruising and soreness at the treatment site.
